For movie producters
Addendum to G.R.R. Martin - Write at least a thousand words a day (and not about lamprey pie). Please. (I understand that the ending will likely not come through you, but give it a shot man!)

A resolution for movie producers/directors: Stop making the two part movie for a single book a thing. If you have to add stuff not in the book to make it two movies, then it's not two movies worth of book. It's one movie, that's it. Just one.

Re: Addendum
Yes, remember Sagan's Great book, Intelligent Life in the universe? He traced everything from clouds of hydrogen to development of mammals. No one will ever take his place!

Addendum
I would add two more resolutions:  (1) For the US to stop regarding Bill Nye as any kind of "science" guy.  He is an actor who likes to pretend he is scientific.  Meanwhile, he has the same science credentials as Leonard Nimoy did. Zero. Ziltch. Nada. 

(2) Tyson lost all credibility the moment he came out to whore for Monsanto/GMO foods.  He is no longer "science" but Franken-science.  Stop treating him as if he is some kind of contemporary Carl Sagan.  Sagan can kick his a** all the way to Neptune and back, BTW.
